Miles to go… in fashion?
July 13, 2009 § 5 Comments
Well I admitted my obsession with Miley Cyrus 2 posts ago so let’s talk about her sense of style (some would say “or there lack of”). I would have to agree with them if we’re talking about her ‘everyday’ looks, the whole t-shirts, Victoria’s Secret PINK sweats, ripped jeans and ugg boots just don’t do it for me. I know she said “I’m just dressing like a normal girl would” but she also said she’s “into high fashion” and carries around that patent orange, Prada bag… Yuck! I could find a better looking one on those ‘Asian-knock-off-are-everywhere-because-they-advertise-with-google’ websites. And don’t get me started on those vomit inducing Hannah Montana looks, but they’re for the concerts and shows so that’s somewhat accepted.
But, I do have to say her red carpet style is quite admirable and akin with my sense of style. She’s one of the few young stars right now that aren’t fully decked out in endorsed jewellery, or ‘so-short-if-you-bend-down-we-can-see-your-g-string’ dresses and thick layers of make up. The classic Valentino, red gown, Roberto Cavalli floral print gown, Herve Leger bandage, bold shoulder dress (L), Marchesa gold and black mini dress and the Zuhair Murad sequined white, gown are some of her best looks. She knows what suits her and understands that ‘less is more’.
And let’s not forget her latest Elle shoot, though the cover was… urhh a bit much (bra and patent, croc jacket? I wouldn’t even go there). The Prada (? Please do correct me if I am wrong)dress and Rodarte boots (I wish I had nice and long enough legs to wear over the knee boots) looks superb! But like I said on someone’s blog earlier; I’m really disappointed they went for a ‘rocker’ look but didn’t put her in Balmain?! A peak-shouldered blazer, loose t-shirt and acid splashed jeans would have worked SO WELL with the theme, but then again, it’s only ELLE.
She’s been getting quiet a lot of ‘unwanted attention’ in regards to the shoot and it’s title of “she’s not a kid anymore”. People need to get OVER IT! She’s 16, 17 in November, she is NOT A KID ANYMORE! We can’t hang onto her Disney image forever. I would rant further but you can read my article in the premier issue of YOKE magazine which comes out in august.
